Excellent signage

I found a building that has excellent signs (which are quite unusual in Singapore). It is the Khoo Teck Puat Hospital in Yishun.

The basement car park is clearly marked to show tower A, B and C. The pillars are numbered in a sensible manner. The LCD screens in the lift lobby show information that is useful to the visitor and is not cluttered with distracting advertisements.

I was able to find my way to the ward and patient room easily - without any hassle. This is a most pleasant experience.

I give credit to the architect and the management of the hospital. I hope that their approach, i.e. simple attention to detail from the public perspective, can be followed by other organisations.
